Should Pandas be allowed to die out?

I saw this question/observation somewhere on the net during browsing.

The reason was that they were too "high maintenance".

I am thinking "no" for the following reason primarily:
We can take recourse to letting nature run its own course if we lived that way. We are in a large part responsible for the destruction of the Panda habitat, that now it becomes our responsibility to make sure we do our part in sustaining them. They are beautiful awesome cute unique mammals - we will be losing a precious part in our co existence with them. After all as human societies go, our energy, money and effort go to all sort of craptacular things* - why not in saving the Panda? I remember what we did to the dodos, which were indiscriminately hunted for their meat (a meaty bird that cannot fly, hmm, what was nature thinking!). Now all we have are dodo drawings and their memorabilias all over Mauritius.

Follow up: I am sorry I endangered you!
